Our convenient NW Calgary location in Crowfoot Village makes it easy for anyone located in NW Calgary to drop off and pick up their best friend!

A busy schedule can prevent you from exercising your dog or letting your dog socialize with other canines. Our dog daycare will do that for you. We keep them stimulated and make a fun, sociable atmosphere that your dog will be excited to come to every day.  Know how excited he or she gets when they know its time to go to the dog park? That will be their every day at Raising Canine!

Raising Canine’s dog daycare is the only Calgary NW daycare service that provides both an indoor and outdoor area.

Your Dog’s Day At Raising Canine

We make sure your dog has a happy, safe, and stimulating day while in our care. Owner Velvetanne Madro ensures a positive and fun atmosphere is maintained throughout the day. Every day your dog will be able to play with his or her friends,  make use of all our toys and equipment, and enjoy our indoor and outdoor play areas!  Our staff are passionate about dogs and will love your pupper or doggo just as much as you do!

During the summer months, your dog will enjoy playing in our wading pools or simply laying about while enjoying the sunshine. During the winter, your dog will frolic in the snow or stay inside to play and stay warm.

We also have ‘Quiet Time’ everyday at 1 – 3 pm, where we turn off the lights, burn incense, have cushions on the benches, and put blankets and the floor so the dogs can sleep and relax while staff massage and cuddle them.

Important Notes

All dogs, over 6 months old, must be spayed or neutered, and have up to date vaccinations including kennel cough and treatment for fleas and lice. Dogs of all ages are welcome at Raising Canine, with puppies having at least the second set of shots.

Our focus is to provide an environment for dogs that is both physically and emotionally safe. To ensure this, we only accept dogs that are already well socialized, have a manageable energy level, and do not present with any socialization or behaviour issues.

Our dog daycare program is not set up to train and help dogs with existing socialization/behaviour issues, therefore we do not accept dogs that exhibit chronic barking, reactivity or aggression toward dogs and/or humans, separation anxiety, anxiety/fear of being with other dogs, extreme high energy, and resource guarding. These issues effect the energy of the other dogs and often cause fights, stress, and distress among them.

If your dog does present with any of these issues, we do offer private sessions in the comfort of your own home. Please feel free to check out our Dog Training Classes, or call us at (403) 984-3644 to set up a date and time with Velvetanne, owner and dog trainer. She will be more then happy to assist you.

It is Raising Canine’s dog daycare policy that we do not accept the following breeds: Pitbulls, Rottweilers, Chow Chows, and Bull Mastiffs.

If you are interested in having your dog attend our dog daycare, please click on the Daycare Registration and submit. Once we are in receipt of your completed online registration form, you will receive a confirmation/information email.

As well, scan to email, ask your vet to scan to email, or email a cell phone photo of your dog’s updated vaccination records to as we are going paperless.
